PREPARATION TIPS and POINTERS: Several things you can do to help ensure a successful testing experience is that your student arrives on time, fully rested and prepared to test. It is also important to make sure your child eats a good dinner the night before, if not a good breakfast the morning of testing. Similarly, encouraging your student to do his or her personal best can greatly improve self-confidence levels leading to better performance.

SST-CC is offering a summer school program required for K thru 8th grade students who need additional instruction. The four-week program, from June 4th to June 28th 2013, will focus on Reading and Math skills and concepts. No summer school for Science and Social Studies, tests will be given for the students who fail these subjects.
SST-CC requires the students who fail Reading and/or Math course(s); STAAR Reading and/or Math tests and eligible ESL students to attend the summer school program. The program will also include the students who are in jeopardy of failing because these students may have a “summer slide” and forget some of what they have learned during summer. The summer school will be an opportune time to intervene and to provide the extra support they need to meet new learning expectations awaiting them.
We have mailed letters to parents of failing students showing the failed subjects and schedule. The students who have excessive absences will need to take exams to promote next grade level. No lunch or breakfast will be provided.
Schedule: 1st Class (Math or ELA) 8-9:50
2nd Class (Math or ELA) 10-11:50
